#LINO19 Daily Recap – Monday, 1 July 2019

Yesterday marked the first day of the scientific programme #LINO19. It was an inspiring day full of scientific and personal exchange – this short recap can only give you a glimpse of everything that happened.


Quote of the day:

“This would be not one kilogramme, this would be THE kilogramme. Well the real thing, anyway. If you were to handle it by hand and leave fingerprints on it, the entire universe would lose mass!

Nobel Laureate Bill Phillips commented on the old standard kilogramme during his Agora Talk.

Over the course of the next four days, we will keep you updated on the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting with our daily recaps. The idea behind it is to bring to you the day’s highlights in a blink of an eye. The daily recaps will feature blog posts, photos and videos from the mediatheque.
